Given that Goldstar was created to be Booster Gold's sidekick as a merchandising opportunity, it seems a shame that DC hasn't made any Goldstar action figures. TitanTrap Customs is picking up DC's slack:
It's too late for you to bid on this eBay custom Trixie Collins Goldstar figure, but that's my fault. I didn't find it until the auction had ended. But you can see it and more customs on TitanTrap's Facebook page.

Booster Gold Volume 2 inker Norm Rapmund was at WonderCon in Anaheim this past weekend where Kristy (@codemonkey37) caught him comforting an over-indulging Booster Gold:
Poor Booster looks like he's spent the past two years consoling himself about his DCnU exhile by eating lots and lots of pie. He may be skipping the gym, but at least he's keeping his costume in fantastic shape! (Old school is the only school!)
Photographer Kristy spent the convention in a Stephanie Brown Batgirl costume. You can find her pictures on her Twitter feed here. Thanks for sharing your pics with the world, Kristy.
UPDATE 2014-04-21: Kristy tells us via Twitter that she doesn't deserve credit for the photograph, just Booster's costume. That's the best part, anyway.

I know I showed you a Booster Gold hoodie on Monday, and typically I wouldn't show you another one so quickly, but Courtney dropped by Monday's comments to point out this limited time offer:
Hoodied, the etsy.com seller of this handmade hoodie is currently taking orders for this Booster Gold-inspired hoodie, but will stop on April 20. That's this Sunday.
So if you want your very own Booster Gold hoodie — and who doesn't — hurry over to www.etsy.com/shop/hoodied and place your order. Be forewarned: this Boosterrific beauty will set you back $130.00 plus shipping. It's a small price to pay for fashion this golden.

Futures End was all we talked about yesterday, as we were excited about the possibility of Booster Gold getting his own comic. As much as I enjoy Booster Gold, Batman Beyond, and time travel stories, Futures End still strikes me as too derivative for its own good. But then again, the whole New 52 seems like an overlong, carelessly Elseworlds story to me, so I'm guessing I'm just not the target audience.
Last week's poll question: What is your reaction to this weeks spoilers for FUTURES END? (36 votes)
Now for something completely different. Captain America 2 has made a mountain of money for Marvel Studios. Why does the public seems to like Marvel movies more than DC movies? Could it be because of stars like Chris Evans? You know, that guy sure would make a good Booster Gold.
This week's poll question: What would you think of actor Chris Evans playing Booster Gold in Booster Gold: The Movie?

Several people were kind enough to notify me that Booster Gold appears in DC's latest teaser image for Futures End. That is Booster Gold, isn't it?
DC's teasers are designed to keep us excited and talking about their comics. They tend to be more metaphorical allusions than actual promises of published content. Therefore, we probably shouldn't spend too much time discussing what we think of the new costume (Booster's 3rd in the New 52) or what Booster could be doing with Tim Drake as a sidekick. Neither should we debate whether that is Smallville's Booster Gold or whether Booster will have anything to do with Futures End's emphasis on Earth-2 or the DC Multiverse.
However, if you enjoy entertaining such intellectual exercises, be my guest. You'll find the conversation has already started in the Boosterrific Forum (with a link to the original teaser image).
UPDATE 2014-04-16: As you can see from the link to BleedingCool.com that Shawn left in the comments below, it is starting to look like Booster will have a spin-off title related to Futures End. Will it be more relevant to the Futures End story than his Flashpoint adventure? Who cares so long as Booster gets his own title again!
